I'm nothing more than a songwriter trying to present my creations as best I can. I realized I was a composer when I noticed tunes in my head that I'd never heard elsewhere. Lyrics come almost that easy now but my performance skills are lacking. Arranging my own music is time consuming so I often write lyrics to available arrangements when commercial value is not an issue. Although I could benefit from the performing talents of others, I'm a one man band.
My band was born 56 years ago. Our first tune was "Waaaaaa!". (There's nothing like passing through a birth canal and landing on one's head to inspire an artist to scream out a simple song like that.)
I don't play well enough to play live. If I don't adapt an existing midi file, I make my own. Either way, I'm playing music via my computer.

My primary tool is my brain. (Is that why I write ROCK music?)
